Night.

Picture Courtesy: ME

As night descends, a pall falls upon life. I find myself in the middle of the meaningless chaos and the mind-numbing emptiness in this absurd universe. I feel cold, terribly cold, alone, out here in my mind.

I try to find meaning, but I can’t seem to accept the absurdity that life brings, the infinitesimal and hideous atoms of reality.

Your texts become hazy and they fade out. The light goes out. As I stare at the ceiling, it crashes down. Alone, in this nefarious surreality of mine, the night descends upon me.


Okay, I know what you are thinking! But no, the night isn’t my arch-nemesis and I am completely okay!

It’s just that I was reading about Absurdism when a sudden deluge of inspiration produced a musing.

Do tell me what you think about this reflection. I would love to hear about your thoughts on this as well!

  1. Night is a treasure box for me. As the night expands I kinda become a philosopher. And by the day I become oblivious to all those thoughts. Well night is always not about sadness,grief,pain etc. Its the way u view it. Night is beautiful if u see it beautifully and its like a beast which will crush your soul if you view it with pain. About this piece of writing its beautiful. Looking forward to more of your musings.

  2. When I’m in experimental mode I’ll start with an image… as you have done… and see where it takes me, paying no mind to the world’s logic. I’d say that’s what you’ve done here. I like it.

  3. The feelings in the poem come across as authentic. I especially liked this line: ” I feel cold, terribly cold, alone, out here in my mind.” Also, I liked how the poem was structured. Thanks for sharing it!

  4. Absolutely beautiful. The segue of the words into an fantastic end is nevertheless intriguing. I love the imagery too. Subtle but enchanting. Just like the beauty of the night
